Following confirmation from the UK government that Malta and the Balearics Islands will join the Green list for international travel, easyJet has put over 50,000 extra seats on sale to the new Green list destinations this summer to serve demand and provide more choice for customers to be reunited with loved ones or take a well-deserved break.
A new route from Bristol to Malta will launch from 9 July and operate twice weekly on Mondays and Fridays throughout the summer. There are also thousands of additional seats available from the UK to the Balearic Islands this summer season including from Bristol to Palma, Mahon and Ibiza Flights and holidays are now available to book online at easyJet.com.
easyJet is one of the leading UK carriers to European Green list destinations with around one million seats operating this summer from the UK.
Johan Lundgren, easyJet CEO commented:
“We really want to get back to what we do best and connect people across Europe so we welcome these additions to the Green list and in response we have put over fifty thousand more seats on sale to new and existing routes to Green destinations. This includes a brand new route from Bristol to Malta, meaning we now have around one million seats operating to current European Green list destinations this summer.
“And with two thirds of UK adults expected to be double jabbed by 19 July, now is the time to let British citizens take advantage of the success of the vaccination programme so we urge the Government to move quickly to remove quarantine and testing for fully vaccinated people travelling from Amber and Green countries. This is overdue and unless testing is also removed flying could become the preserve of the rich again.
“easyJet is ready and able to ramp up and we look forward playing our part in reuniting people with their loved ones or take them on a well-deserved break.”
Through a recent study, by leading epidemiologists Dr Jeffrey Townsend and Dr Alison Galvani who are faculty at the Yale School of Public Health, the airline has shown that much more of Europe should be classed as Green on the government’s framework. easyJet has worked with leading scientists at Yale on research which has shown that travel from several countries would not affect the UK case rate but most importantly that travel to Europe would have very little impact on hospitalisations in the UK. This is because the success of the UK vaccine roll-out has broken the link between cases and hospitalisation. It is the same success that allows for the domestic reopening.
With European governments progressively opening up using frameworks in place which enable travel and much of it restriction free, Europe is also demonstrating that a safe reopening of travel is possible.

All easyJet customers will now be able to change their flights this summer without a change fee at any time up to two hours before departure, providing even more last-minute flexibility. Unlike other airlines, there are no restrictions on dates or destination; customers can transfer to any flights currently on sale up to the end of September 2022, and to any other destination on the airline’s network which spans 35 countries across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. This means that if some travel restrictions are impacting their destination country, such as self-isolation in destination or on return to the UK, customers can easily change their trip to another country on easyJet’s network. Plus, should a mandatory hotel quarantine impact a customer’s travel destination this summer, customers can now request a refund for their flight within four weeks before departure if the restriction is still in place, even if their flights are still operating.
For package holiday bookings, under its existing Protection Promise easyJet holidays customers only need to pay their balance 28 days before travel, and if they need to make any changes or simply change their mind customers can cancel 28 days or more before departure and receive their deposit back as easyJet holidays credit with any further payments refunded back to the original payment method. easyJet holidays has now enhanced it Covid commitments in line with the traffic light system for any customers due to travel this summer up to 30 September 2021. It means should a holiday destination feature on the ‘amber’ list, customers can make fee free changes within 28 days all the way up to 24 hours before travel. Or should a destination be on the ‘red’ list, holidays here won’t go ahead, and as the planned departure date gets closer, customers can make fee free changes within 28 days or easyJet holidays will cancel the holiday no later than seven days before travel with customers given a full refund.
easyJet has partnered with approved testing firms across Europe so that customers can get access to convenient and affordable testing, including PCR tests from £60 if required for their trip when they book flights and holidays at easyJet.com. The airline has also launched a new travel insurance policy which includes COVID-19 cover as standard. The new COVID-19 travel insurance will cover customers who are diagnosed with COVID-19 ahead of a trip, providing the necessary rearrangements or refunds, as well as cover to customers for any required medical care if diagnosed with COVID-19 during their trip. Customers who are unable to return home due to being diagnosed with the virus are also covered for additional accommodation, necessary medical assistance, and the cost of returning home safely.
The safety and wellbeing of all customers and crew remains easyJet’s highest priority and the airline continues to have a number of biological safety measures in place onboard in line with guidance from the relevant authorities. This includes daily enhanced cabin disinfection effective in protecting against coronavirus for at least 24 hours and mandatory mask wearing for customers and crew. All easyJet aircraft are already fitted with HEPA filters, similar to those used in hospitals, which filter 99.97% of airborne contaminants in the cabin, including viruses and bacteria.
